Ok, this is an odd one and I'm just not sure where to post this, so if I put it in the wrong place, I apologize.
My LO is 7 weeks old. I've noticed over the past few days that his belly button is sticking WAY out. We're talking about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch. (Hee hee, it reminds me of a cabbage patch doll LOL ) If I press gently on it, it goes back in, and when I release it, it comes right back out. It doesn't feel terribly hard, and it does not seem to bother him, but it REALLY sticks out when he poops, passes gas or cries. If he's sleeping, or calm, it's less prominent.
I did a bit of digging online and it sounds like this is a 'herniated belly button'. Has anyone experienced this? If so, did it go away, like they say it will?
I wonder if there is a link between this and and his sudden change in bowel pattern recently....any thoughts?
